People in and around Thief River Falls continued their clean up from storm damage. Friday's thunderstorm brought winds of 60 to 80 miles per hour in the city, and damage just outside the city suggests winds reached over 100 miles per hour.

Even though it's been three days since the storm hit the area, there is still a lot of work ahead for those that got hit the hardest.

One of those was a farm east of Thief River. Winds damaged or destroyed nine grain bins. The large structures look like crushed pop cans. In one of the worst damaged areas just outside of Thief River, a home had its two-stall garage ripped away. Most of the damage in town consisted of downed trees and damage that they caused when they fell.

City crews are working to pick all of the branches that have been brought to the boulevards over the weekend. Most of the damage in town is in the south and east sections of the city. No one was injured in the storm.
